A lot of museums prepared exhibitions related to the 100th anniversary of Polish independence. The one at the National Museum in Krakow differs from them with a strict relationship with the historical thought of Józef Piłsudski – creator of Polish Legions, architect of independence, but also the strategist, publicist and inquiring analyst of Polish history.
The early Renaissance period master, Hans Suess von Kulmbach, was one of the most outstanding artists working in Albrecht Dürer's circle – a renowned painter, printmaker, illuminator and stained glass window designer. In spite of this, little is known about his life, or whether or not he visited the Royal Town while executing commissions for Krakow.
The exhibition ‘Kraków 1900’ tells the story of the city at the turn of the 20th century — the Krakow of the Belle Époque.
The National Museum in Kraków has gathered the largest and most valuable collection of works by Stanisław Wyspiański (1869-1907) — one of the most important, original and appreciated artist from the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries, who belongs among such artists as Klimt, Mucha and Gaudi; the exhibition comprises of about 900 works.
The painting was purchased ca. 1800 in Italy, by Adam Jerzy, the son of Princess Izabela Czartoryska, and donated to the Museum in Puławy where it was exhibited in the ‘Gothic House’ from 1809–1830.

Around the character and Painting" in the Jan Matejko House commemorates the 180th birth anniversary and the 125th death anniversary of one of the greatest Polish artists, the representative of historical painting. The creators of the exhibition stress Matejko's interest in the figure of the "Last Knight of Christianity".
Old books – being valuable objects – were secured with strong bindings. In the centuries between 15th and 16th, bookbinders used boards covered with leather, and later also cardboard, in order to stiffen sewn sheets of paper or parchment. The leather on the covers and spine was decorated – with the technique of engraving or carving called blind tooling.

During such an important year of the 100th anniversary of Polish Independence, in such a significant place as the seat of the President of the Republic of Poland, in representative rooms, where the most important national events take place, the gallery of the most beautiful landscapes in Polish art is presented.
